Oregon Department of Transportation will be putting finishing touches on two U.S. Highway 26 paving projects this week and adding rumble strips to a third section.
The paving projects are located on north end of the Warm Springs Reservation and east of Madras on U.S. Highway 26.
The rumble strips will be installed on Thursday, Sept. 6, from milepost 115.3 (between Cherry Lane and Boise Drive) to 111.3 (Warm Springs grade).
The projects are part of ODOT's continued investment in roadway improvement projects throughout Oregon's central region (ODOT Region 4).
On U.S. 26, from the intersection with U.S. Highway 97, south of Madras, to milepost 7.20, Knife River Northwest has completed a full-width asphalt overlay and will complete striping and placing shoulder rock by Sept. 9.
Traffic may be reduced to one lane and controlled by flaggers and pilot cars through the work zone. Delays will be under 20 minutes.
Oregon Mainline Paving has completed paving a project on U.S. Highway 26, from the Mount Hood junction to the Wapinitia junction, milepost 57.30 to 70.69.
Through Sept. 9, the contractor will continue to place reflective markers and install new signs. There will be single-lane closures controlled by flaggers and pilot cars from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. each day.
Delays will be under 20 minutes. All work is dependent upon weather.
